The company Barbara Glasmacher Internationale Schulberatungs GmbH was founded in 1996. Barbara Glasmacher’s profound knowledge of the British school system goes back to the days when she was researching suitable British boarding schools for her own four daughters.
Turning this knowledge to her professional advantage she has now been consulting parents on the best choice of boarding school for their children for over 20 years. Hundreds of very happy students are the fruit of her work.
Barbara Glasmacher’s youngest daughter, Theresa Glasmacher, knows boarding school life well from her own time at Sevenoaks School. When her mother Barbara first started the business in 1996, Theresa had just received her Master's Degree in History and Environmental Politics and decided very spontaneously to take a year off to set up the office structures and routines.
Theresa then returned to her true calling and worked in the environmental sector for a number of years. She spent 2001-2006 in Berlin developing and implementing large EU-funded projects in the area of climate change. In 2006, she returned to work in the family education business and became managing director alongside her mother in 2013. Theresa is married and has two sons.
